A Letter Before I Leave You

Dear Lifetime Entertainment Network,

Maybe you were unaware. Maybe you didn't know just how busy the next six weeks are going to be for me. Maybe you didn't know just how much I had to get done today. But I doubt it. Because you do this to me all the time.

Over the next six weeks I will be bouncing away-home-internationally away-home-starting school-and, oh yeah, working on a major video production. So I've got a bit on my plate, and today is one of two days off in the process. And while I'm away, people will be staying at my apartment, and my parents will be coming to pick up my dog and I need to NOT have every pair of shoes in the whole place greeting them directly in front of the door as I do now.

As you can see, the last thing I needed was a tv movie on this morning that would suck me in faster than the vacuuming that I should have been doing instead. Especially not one that would leave me no other option than to lay lifeless on my bed weeping because oh no! The cancer's come back and she won't make it to Christmas and she wants him to go away and not see her like this but he loves her and won't leave her side. Evil. Pure evil. I think someone at Lifetime movie network is launching a secret plot to keep the homes in America in a disheveled state by putting sappy movies on in which their watchers sit and weep instead of cleaning up the dishes. Just a thought.

Needless to say, after today's experience, I will be rapidly skimming over channel 26 in the near future, so as not to get sucked in again. Well, after I watch the other movie that's on tonight that you relentlessly advertised this morning. I can't miss it now, can I?

Sincerely, with love and kisses,

P.S. Do you know what the weather is going to be like next week where I am going?
Sun: 100
Mon: 102
Tues: 101
Wed: 100
Thurs: 97 (ooh...a cool front!)
Fri: 97

Yes, friends, I'm travelling 30 minutes south of Hell. I'll tell Lucifer ya'll said Howdy.

  1. This made me laugh so hard.

    I have to keep the tv off during the day or I get in very big trouble with channels like that.
